Francisco Javier Delgado's appeal argued there was insufficient evidence against himMarta del Castillo - EFE archive
A new appeal by Francisco Javier Delgado, brother of the main suspect in the Marta del Castillo case, Miguel Carcaño, has been turned by the provincial court in Seville.
Delgado’s lawyer had argued that his client should not stand trial as he claimed the only evidence against him was testimony from El Cuco, the juvenile who was recently found guilty of covering up Marta’s death.
It’s understood that the court did not mention the basis for Delgado’s appeal in the text of its decision, simply saying that it was ‘not applicable’, as an earlier appeal he had lodged had only recently been turned down by the same court.
Europa Press reports that Delgado’s defence is now considering an appeal to the Constitutional Court following Thursday’s ruling from Seville.
